Golf Son Muntaner becomes latest European Tour Destination

21 January 2020

European Tour Destinations is delighted to welcome Golf Son Muntaner, a member of Arabella Golf, to its network of world class venues.

The Mallorcan venue becomes the third Spanish destination to join the network, alongside Finca Cortesin in Málaga and PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona.

Golf Son Muntaner, designed by Kurt Rossknecht, opened in 2000 and is ideally situated near the capital city of Palma. Golf Son Muntaner is considered to be one of the most beautiful courses on the island, surrounded by a variety of Mediterranean flora and fauna. It also boasts the oldest olive tree ‘Na Capitana’ on Mallorca which features on the club’s logo. 

In 2016, Golf Son Muntaner completely reseeded the golf course; Bermuda Celebration was sown on every fairway and Agrostis V8 on every green. The project not only enhanced the course, it also demonstrated the venue's commitment to environmental change, with less water and chemical usage.

Alongside its golf course, Golf Son Muntaner has the largest putting green in Mallorca, an illuminated driving range and the Arabella Golf Academy, which is available to adults and children alike. Restaurant Son Muntaner concludes its portfolio of services and is the perfect location to relax after playing the course.

Bernat Llobera, Director of Golf at Golf Son Muntaner, said: “We are extremely pleased to have joined European Tour Destinations, and are looking forward to taking advantage of their expertise as we work to meet our objectives. To be part of the global network of world class venues is something we are proud of and very much look forward to being part of the European Tour family.”

Ian Knox, Co-Head of European Tour Destinations, said: “We are extremely proud that Golf Son Muntaner has become the latest addition to our portfolio of world class venues. Mallorca is a key golf market and we are delighted to add another venue with a great reputation in a great location, with the opportunity to host tournament golf in the future.”

In 2019, the European Tour International Schedule will feature a minimum of 48 tournaments in 31 countries, including eight Rolex Series events, all part of the Race to Dubai.
Celebrating the global connectivity of the European Tour and Dubai, the Race to Dubai is a season-long competition to crown the European Tour’s Number One player, an honour which in 2018 went to Italy’s Francesco Molinari for the first time, and which, since 2009, has also been achieved three times by Rory McIlroy, twice by Henrik Stenson, and once each by Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Luke Donald and Tommy Fleetwood.
Since its formation in 1972, the European Tour has witnessed 28 Members celebrate a total of 54 Major Championship titles between them, enjoyed 11 Members attaining the pinnacle of World Number One and has celebrated its diversity as players from 36 different countries have won on the Tour.
The European Tour also manages the developmental Challenge Tour and the Staysure Tour (formerly known as the Senior Tour) which is the men’s professional golf tour for members aged 50 and older.
The European Tour is also the Managing Partner of Ryder Cup Europe, the body which, alongside the PGA of America, administers golf’s greatest team contest, The Ryder Cup. In 2018, the 42nd staging of the biennial contest between Europe and the United States of America took place at Le Golf National, France, from September 28-30. Europe were the victors with a score of 17.5-10.5.
The European Tour broadcasts live coverage of its tournaments to more than 490 million homes in more than 150 countries every week, generating in excess of 2,200 global broadcast hours for each event.
